Orange and Raisin Cake
This was my great-grandmother’s recipe, and I just got her hand grinder from my grandma.
- Grind 1 orange (seeded) and 1 cup raisins.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- pinch salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp soda (in 1/2 cup boiling water)
- about 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp cinammon and vanilla
- Combine everything, adding orange and raisins last.
- Bake at 350′ for about 40 minutes.
- Ice if desired with icing sugar and orange juice.
